You'd think a company unleashing hordes of killer apes would look pretty evil, but the latest set of Rise of the Planet of The Apes concept art makes it look pretty nice.
The last batch of concept art showed the horrifying images of killer monkeys on a rampage. I knew the best was yet to come from Weta and they delivered another stunning set of visuals.
The latest set shows the interior and exterior designs of the company that accidentally sets them loose on the world, Gen Sys Laboratories, and a key prop from the film.

This is apparently the canister that has the brain enhancing serum. In one of the trailers we see Ceasar learning to open it.

Rise of the Apes is an origin story in the truest sense of the term. Set in present day San Francisco, the film is a reality-based cautionary tale, a science fiction/science fact blend, where man's own experiments with genetic engineering lead to the development of intelligence in apes and the onset of a war for supremacy.Rise of the Planet of the Apes opens August 5, 2011 in the U.S.
